Sample from a 12oz, "full-aperture" can. Thanks b3shine for sharing. Clear golden color. Good thin white head. Little loose lace. Doughy, bready aroma. Hint of banana. Good, smooth lighter body, lighter carbonation, more dry texture. Light bitter, kind of sweet taste. Tasty and refreshing. Very nice golden lager!

Fresh can to taster (shared with the group; thanks egajdzis). Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells doughy and lightly bitter. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

cpetrone84 (1201) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Transparent golden yellow with a thick creamy white head. The nose is lightly toasted grain with a touch of dough malt balanced by a fairly assertive citric hop in the back with a grassy, earthy grain lingering in the back. The flavor has a more assertive grain flavor, light notes of dough with a strong citric bitterness. There is a lightly floral and grassy hop note accompanied by some tangy rye like grain in the finish. Really light, fluffy, and creamy feel with a medium syrupy body and crisp assertive carbonation. The beer is balanced and smooth, light and crisp. Nice stuff, stronger on the grain side than I love but still very enjoyable.

On tap. Golden in color. Very malty in flavor with some sweetness. A slight amount of bitterness in the after taste. Good beer!
